The first Wednesday of every month is the Insecure Writer’s Support Group bloghop. It's a day where writers/bloggers reach out and post their fears and doubts about their writing, but also share their triumphs, no matter how big or small.
My name is Elise Fallson, and it’s been a whole month since I’ve blogged. *hangs head in shame*
Last month was supposed to be my come-back month, but instead, it’s been one of the worst for me writing wise. In fact, it’s been so bad, I’ve put up my laptop to go old school… pen and paper.
Anyway, part of the problem is that we’ve started a small B&B activity that occupies most of my time. And though it’s only going to run from April to September, my writing time has been slashed. And I’m so tired. Like all the time. But one of the positive points about running a B&B has been meeting so many different people. Every couple that stay at our B&B is different and each has had a slightly different way of doing things. It’s been an interesting study in human behaviour, as well as in the art of small talk and chitchat. For a writer and introvert, this is pretty valuable stuff.
I know this first year is going to be the most difficult. But, I’m hoping with practice, and a new washing machine (mine broke last week and I had to do laundry at my Mom’s for a week---ffffuuuuuuukkkk), things will get easier. But working in the service industry, no matter how small, is stressful. I could write on and on about that, but you know…. time…..
I hope to write more about the people I meet. I’ve already met some pretty interesting characters, luckily, they’ve all been lovely people--so far.
Well, that's it for me, hope you all are doing well and finding the time you need to write. And as always, take care and catch up with you soon... I hope! :)
Thank you, Alex Cavanaugh for another great bloghop. And a big thank you to all the awesome co-hosts this month!
